I'm back from a very needed few days away in Oxfordshire & Wiltshire. Have you missed me?
I loved my couple of days in Oxfordshire. My friends have the loveliest house and cats, and I'll be back again (if they invite me).
Next stop - Swindon. I don't really know what to say about Swindon. As a young mod, it was an exciting place, full of charity shops stocked to the brim with bargains, northern soul nights, lots of mod-related clubs......now it's not...that's about it really. I pass through and come out the other side.
Final stop - deepest darkest Wiltshire. A short trip this time but long enough to give my 88 year old Gran some more laptop lessons. As I mentioned on Facebook - Grans have things in their cupboard that no-one else has - Crunchy Peanut Butter, Mint Sauce...that sort of thing. Grans are good.
What you hear about it being a slower pace of life in the country is all true. The bus that took me to the train station this morning gayly ambled its way round half of Wiltshire, picking up the most bizarre people on the way, working to no timetable whatsoever. You never know when you might actually arrive at your location - you can only hope for the best.
Back in the smoke now....what's happened while I've been gone?
